Phase 1 completed.  We started work on phase 2 thanks to our donors and sponsors.  Phase 1 we had to locate the correct property in the right location that was safe and accessible.  We then had to secure that location and prepare it for Phase 2 building work to start.  

Phase 2 building work commenced 2 months ago.  Extensive work had to be done on the building to get it ready and safe for children and families in the favela.  The building had to be re-wired to the highest standards also the plumbing had to be gutted and replaced.  A new floor had to be laid down and also the walls had to be resurfaced.  The building had only one toilet so another toilet had to be added.  A new shower unit needed to be installed.  Work on the office space, kitchen space also commenced.  A big undertaking lead by head builder, Fabio Santana.

When we are finished this will be far more than just a STEAM learning center, it will be a hub for the community as well provide services to help everyone in our local community.


Below are images of Phase 1 to Phase 2 work.
